ConVal To Participate In NH Youth Risk Behavior Survey

On March 23, ConVal Regional High School will take part in the 2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey sponsored by the New Hampshire Departments of Education and Health and Human Services.

The survey is administered every other year and addresses the health behaviors of 9th through 12th grade students. The questionnaire measures behaviors that fall into six categories: (1) behaviors that result in unintentional and intentional injuries; (2) tobacco use; (3) alcohol and other drug use; (4) sexual behaviors that result in HIV infection, other sexually-transmitted diseases, and unintended pregnancies; (5) dietary behaviors; and (6) physical activity.

The surveys have been designed to protect your child’s privacy. Students will not put their names on the surveys. Students can skip any question that they do not wish to answer. While we would like all selected students to take part in the survey, participation is completely voluntary.

If you do NOT want your student to take part in the survey, please download this form from the school website, check the box, sign and return it with your student to school on Monday after vacation.

As always, feel free to contact the School Counseling Office at 924-4120 with any questions you may have, or call the Department of Health and Human Services 271-4988 directly with questions.

With best regards,

Kim Chandler
Director of School Counseling

The ConVal Robotics Team tweaks their robot before the VEX Competition in Pembroke

ConVal Robotics Team Garners Three VEX Robotics Awards

The ConVal Robotics Team competed in the “Wrap Up” competition in Pembroke Academy February 7. 48 teams presented their solution to the STEM problem “Skyrise”.

“Skyrise” is a challenge where students design a robot to quickly and accurately grab and stack cylindrical shaped game pieces and placing hollow square pieces on a tube. As usual students may take on the challenge of writing code for an autonomous period. These challenges are designed to simulate real manufacturing problems while keeping a high interest with the adolescent experiences.

The ConVal team of Brett Scharmett, Jackson Perry, and Nate Blanchette placed 32/48 alliances and received the Creative Design, Intense Competitor, and Gracious Sportsmanship Awards.

The ConVal Nordic Team at the Nordic State Championships at Great Glen Trails

ConVal Competes in the Div II Nordic State Championships 

The ConVal Nordic team traveled to Great Glen Trails at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road to compete in the Division II Nordic State Championships. 

Two events were featured during the day set against a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery: a 4K classical race in the morning followed by an afternoon 4K freestyle race.  Sawyer Cawthern, Doris Donelan, and Kamanakai Kalvaitis took part in both races while Danica Morris and Veronica Parker raced in the freestyle portion of the day. 

Claire Rupp and Fenia Benet-Higgins, both skimeisters, also raced in both morning and afternoon and will travel to Waterville Valley to take part in the Division II Alpine Championships in both Slalom and Giant Slalom.  Skimeisters compete in all four skiing events; their combined results are adjusted for the differing lengths of alpine and Nordic races and ranked to determine the top Divisional Skimeister.

In the morning's classical race Cawthern scored first for ConVal with a time of 18:31, followed by Benet-Higgins, Rupp, and Donelan.  In the afternoon freestyle competition, Cawthern again scored first for the Cougars with a time of 15:50, followed by Benet-Higgins, Rupp, Morris, Donelan, and Parker.  Kalvaitis was the lone Cougar boy skiing for ConVal, and posted times of 18:29 and 17:45 respectively in the classic and freestyle races.

ConVal NOSB Teams Place 1st and 3rd at Regional Competition

Besting 16 other regional teams, ConVal's Ocean Bowl Team A won the Nor'Easter Bowl in Ocean Sciences that was held at the University of Maine in Orono on Saturday. ConVal's Team B placed third, after meeting the A Team in the semifinals.

The first place in the regional competition qualifies ConVal A to travel to the NOSB National Championship which will be hosted by the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Research Laboratory in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, in April. The theme for the finals is the "The Science of Oil in the Ocean."

The National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) is an academic competition in environmental and earth sciences. It engages high school students in the broad field of ocean sciences, prepares them for ocean science-related and other STEM careers, and helps them become knowledgeable citizens and environmental stewards.
